North Puget Sound Faceting Guild is a
organization focusing on the faceting of crystals to
make gemstones and promotion of related interests.
Our general service area is the North Puget Sound
region of Washington State, North of Seattle.
Membership, however, is open to anyone with an active
interest in faceting and finished gemstones regardless
of their place of residence.
The purpose of the club is to promote mutual interests and
benefits of its members and to the general public in
faceting, gemology, and in the promotion of kindred
arts and crafts.
